O Vine, Boast not

Son of man, what is the vine tree more than any tree,

or than a branch which is among the trees of the forest?

[Ezekiel 15:2 KJV] 


God’s vine,

Chosen by the creator

Made for his purpose


My soul what are you?

For without grace,

You are of all men miserable


For divine goodness

Has made thee fruitful

Having been planted in God’s good soil


Does thou boast?

Fir as the increase of thy field

So is the increase of thy debt to thy creator


Think not my soul to exalt thyself

It is none but mercy that speaks for thee

Boast not, for you are naught without the vinedresser
